  1. oooh I'm interested. we'll see if I can be ready by then.

  2. I'll be there, it should be fun.

  3. Thank you for posting for us. We are excited about the tournament. We are promoting, FUN, competition, and are hoping to also bring out some newer players who might not have an entire army painted. Half of the prize will go randomly to the field. Even players getting demolished by SandWyrm will have an incredible chance to leave with good prize support.

  4. So even Farmpunk will have a chance? :P
